Red, White & Blue Day is an annual campaign for schools to help raise money and awareness for the three national charities for our Armed Forces.
Fun and Challenging Activities
Our ‘Design a Medal’ Competition will be launched at the beginning of September. If you have already registered your school to take part in this year’s campaign you will be sent the competition package direct to your email address. There is no need to registered again.
Engaging Lesson Plans
Our Lesson Plans, based on the D-Day Landings, are being formulated. As and when produced these will be sent to you. Our D-Day Landings Powerpoint presentation is now available and can be downloaded by following the link below.
75 Years Since D-Day
The theme for this year’s Red, White & Blue Day will be the Normandy, or ‘D-Day’, Landings, to mark their 75th anniversary.
On 6 June 1944, Allied forces launched a combined naval, air and land assault on Nazi-occupied France. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the Allied landings on the Normandy beaches marked the start of a long and costly campaign to liberate France (and ultimately Europe) from German occupation.
On Friday 4 October 2019, we’re encouraging children to come to school dressed in red, white and blue clothing and donate £1 towards the work of the three national charities of our Armed Forces. By doing so, they will not only have the opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices made during the Second World War, but also to contribute towards the work of the charities and ensure continued support for the men and women of today’s Armed Services.

“The children very much enjoyed wearing their own clothes and we spent the day commemorating the end of the War and learning more about the experiences of those who lived through it.”
Miss Powell, Headteacher

“We enclose our donation from money raised by the Pupils’ Council. We set up an obstacle course with a bake sale. Our pupils had a fantastic time and are so pleased to send you this money.”
